in case you've not realised, the annual MET gala is held in new york today. it is like the fashion oscars, but way fiercer for the ladies. this year's theme is 'schiaparelli and prada: impossible conversations'. and if you are expecting mostly black ties and tuxes for the gents then you are not too far off. however, there was a rumour/memo going around stating that all vogue staffers were to wear pink to honour elsa schiaparelli. vogue editor hamish bowles therefore arrived in a stunning pink tux from dolce & gabbana fall winter 2009. i love the little accessories he pinned on the lapel, and he seemed to be wearing a waistcoat underneath like the runway shot. his shoes were simply the icing on the cake.

hamish pulled off the look with such amazing confidence. it is very rare that one could outshine a dolce & gabbana model, i think hamish just did there. here's to more daring and creative black tie looks!



  1. Nice designs & color combination..I like the whole men's wear but I like tie at the place of bow.

  2. Just looked very big on him, no? Needed to be shortened a bit on sleeves and hem?

  3. prometheus actor logan marshall green looked sooooo sexy at the met. What was he wearing?

    1. he was said to be wearing balenciaga. i've not seen pics yet, need to find!

  4. I loved Hamish’s look, especially the subtle details like the brooch and his matching socks. I’m glad he went with the bow tie instead of the skinny tie.


what's he wearing?
